"I bought my Caravan 17 years ago, when my son was 18 months old. It had everything I wanted, including air bags, tinted windows, power windows and mirrors, anti-lock brakes, K-9 alarm system, sliding doors on both sides, cruise, fold down/removable rear bench seats, and an easy transition from driving a small vehicle. I've kept up with regular maintenance (regular oil changes, a/c recharge, etc) and only very recently had to replace struts, window motors, water pump, radiator hoses, and transmission fluid pan seal. Considering the age of my van, I'm quite pleased that I have had no major, costly repairs, and the few mentioned above I was able to buy the parts and do all of the labor with the help of a friend. Gas mileage is much better than the specs. I will keep my van as long as I possibly can, and if the day comes that I must replace it, I hope that I can replace it with a new Dodge Caravan."
